esprit de corps

The last line of the first paragraph in Wikipedia's entry sums up my understanding of esprit de corps:  

"While the term is often used by authority figures as a generic value judgment of the willpower, obedience and self-discipline of a group tasked with performing duties assigned by a superior, more accurately it refers to the level of individual faith in the collective benefit gained by such performance."

These people get it.
